Use this activity, called Building Background Knowledge (BBK), to introduce students to the zombie apocalypse and how energy transformation can help save us. On the two outside boxes of the graphic organizers, students write observations, commonalities, things that stick out etc. about the pictures and video. The interior boxes are used with a zombie apocalypse map simulation, which allows students to see how a zombie infestation might spread in the United States, depending on changeable variables.
The link to the Powerpoint is included in the document. BBKs are a great way to introduce students to new material, get them making connections to real-life examples and build in differentiation for many students!
